[mythtv-users] Way OT (sorry) - CD burner kaput

I hope someone has some quick ideas to justify me burning a bit of OT
I'm hoping to upgrade my Jarod's Guide Fc3 0.18.1 clunker to a latest
rev to get off DD and onto SD. I pulled down the F7 KDE livecd iso.
If I try to burn it using xcdroast, it says there is no media found.
If I do a:
dd if=Fedora-7-KDE-Live-i686.iso of=/dev/cdrom1
dd: opening `/dev/cdrom1': No medium found
I know I've got the right device name 'cause if I manually eject the
disc beforehand, it pulls it back in before giving the error. I've
never successfully written with this drive before, so can't write off
it being a hardware problem. /var/log/messages has nothing.
Any ideas before I write it off and try to get installation media elsewhere?
Any way to boot the .iso straight off the JFS partition it's on?
